Interesting. Any gap of longer than 6 weeks seems to be counted as a "new season" or series, when something returns - I recall the second half of Dr Who's 14th season being announced as a "new series" when it came back after a long autumn/fall/winter Christmas break, although these days fans (and BBC commercial releases) count it as one season.

I do like the idea of the 33 Tara episodes and the final 8 Emmas being one humungous season though Smile What a way to sign off the series!

The first series of ITV's Grace has just one episode in the UK!

Intersetingly, France's ORTF2 (2e châine) showed "The Forget-Me-Knot" as the last episode of their series 2 (series 5), although they showed them in a unique order and skipped 9 episodes ... perhaps!

Télévision française was affected by disputes in June & July 1968 and the Swiss papers I've been checking stopped listing their programmes for several weeks, so some of those missing 9 might have been broadcast.
Switzerland saw the lot in the first run on Suisse Romande, January-July 1968.

Suisse Romande showed all but 8 episodes of series 4 in October 1966 - March 67, again apparently doing better than ORTF, which skipped 13, but showed "The Master Minds", which I haven't found in the Suisse Romande broadcasts yet. In 1967, "A Touch of Brimstone" was held back to a Wednesday 10:10pm timeslot, two months afte the previous episode, "The Thirteen Hole" ended the series run on Saturdays nights, spisodes starting between 8:30 and 9:30pm.

The listings are quite annoying because sometimes they say "film policier" instead of the programme title.

1968 must have a been a great year to live in Switzerland, at least the French side - you had The Avengers on Suisse Romande and ORTF2 and also later on on Suisse Allemantique and Allemange II - you would often have a couple of episodes a week.

That's fascinating. Maybe they had a genre "slot" for police/crime series, an early version of "stripping"? How did you come across the Swiss tx details?

They certainly did, as The Avengers was replaced by The Saint, The Champions, Dangerman or Department S at various times.

I've been going through theSwiss TX via the archives of L'Express/L'Impartial at http://www.lexpressarchives.ch/Olive/APA/SwissSNP_En/default.aspx#panel=home and the somewhat easier to navigate Journal de Geneve/Gazette de Lausanne https://www.letempsarchives.ch

I was actually after confirmation of the French TX but when I discovered Switzerland screened most episodes way earlier I started collecting the data.

I bet the Swiss loved The Champions, what with all its "Geneva HQ" scenes! (Filmed in sunny Elstree) Very Happy
